My wise and endearing Uncle Phil classifies beer into two categories: Manly beer and sissy beer. The new DNA Alcoholic Spring Water ($6.99/six-pack at 7-Eleven) would definitely fall into the sissy beer category. I really dont understand this "pure water thats lost its (sic) innocence."
After consulting the brands Web site, www.wetplanet.com, I was informed that "DNA will highjack your imagination, go for it. ... You dont have to understand it." Apparently my confusion was meant to be.
Basically, DNA is a clear alcoholic fruit-and-spring water malt beverage that comes in an Orange Crush-like bottle featuring a big thumb print (for some nonbiologically sound reason, DNA = thumbprint). The vinyl label peels off so you can "sneak" it anywhere. It boasts a 5 percent alcohol content, which means if you want to get loaded, unless you really enjoy the taste of fruit-flavored Certs and like to pee a lot, it probably wont be time well spent. Whatever happened to the glory days of malt liquor?Tom AHearn pays attention here every other week. E-mail comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
